If you are the owner of a car can it be registered to someone else in one state but insured by you in another state or can the registrant insure it in a different state?
The owner of the car has to register the vehicle. The person on the registration must insure the vehicle, or be listed to drive that vehicle on a family policy. That example sounds close to insurance fraud so please correct the situation. Sell the car to the other person and they have to insure it.
Actually it is 100% legal for a person to insure a vehicle registered in someone elses name so long as nothing illegal is going on...it can be the parents etc.....

If a car is insured and registered in one state and a son resides in another state with the insured car is that OK?
Answer . Yes. Answer . What we're trying to do is have my boyfriend drive my NJ car to California and I will fly out later on (about 2 months). In the meantime, the car… is in my name, I pay the payments on it, and it is insured with a NJ-based insurance company. I did not contact my insurance agent to let him know I was doing this yet, just thought that insurance covers a car, not a person. But recently I found out maybe I'm wrong. So now, we're trying to get the car insured but my boyfriend's insurer, State Farm doesn't cover NJ-registered cars. What can we do now?
Can someone get insurance on a car if he does not have a license in the United States but has one from another country?
Answer . Yes. You can get insurance on a car without having a license at all. However, you can't legally drive the car without having a valid license. As far as driving wi…th a license from another country, I don't know what our laws are on that, but you should have no trouble getting the car insured.
If you are trying to save money by insuring in a cheaper state, than the answer is no. That would be insurance fraud. Some states like NY mandate that every vehicle registered… in the state carry insurance from a NYS Licensed Insurance Company, and with certain policy limits. There are certain instances like members of the military and college students that are permitted by law to be in another state without becoming a resident and getting their tags and insurance there. Even in NY people try to cheat the system by getting an upstate NY address where the insurance is cheaper. If you are ever in an accident, and the insurance company, police, anyone figures this out, they will simply not pay out on the policy. . That could vary from state to state, but it is always best to register and insure a vehicle in the state where you live. I thought about that when I moved from Indiana, which had much, much lower premiums, to Kentucky. In my case, the vehicle had to be insured in the state in which I live or I would risk it not paying if I had an accident. I believe individual states have requirements that vehicles be registered in the state within a certain amount of time after becoming a resident, too. If the purpose of the question is to find a way to save money on insurance, registration, or any other required expense, between the insurance companies and government rules and regulations, they have it tied up tight so they get you coming and going. Please see the discussion board for another bit of somewhat related information.
Answer . Registration and insurance in any state will allow you to operate the vehicle in every state, but if you are actually living in another state, you must get insura…nce, registration, and a driver's license in your state of residence. The only exception I know of is that a member of the armed services may keep all of these from his state of "permanent residence" while stationed in another.

A car can be registered and insured by a number of people. Usuallythey are one and the same. A car can be insured with having itregistered to you if you would like to drive it….
In NY state can you have a car title in one persons name ie one owner but registration and insurance in another persons name ie the driver?
\nyes, but dont be stupid. i got screwed by helping out my then girlfriend. it doesnt matter who owns that car, as long as there is insurance on it. Names do not matter. howe…ver make sure the person driving the vehicle is on the insurance policy as a driver
That question doesn't really make sense. Yes your vehicle can be registered anywhere you have place of residency but uhh insurance is who ever your insurance company is IE. US…AA, State Farm.....
A general rule of thumb is to insure your car in the state it is registered in.
Can a car be owned by a Coporation in one state and be registered and insured in another state if the car is garaged in that second state?
Yes. It's very common for businesses to do exactly that - register vehicles in a state other than where the company is incorporated - especially with commercial motor carriers…. Each state will have certain criteria which will need to be met before a vehicle can be registered in that state. Usually, at least one of the requirements will be that the entity registering the vehicle own or lease property in that state.
Yes, it is very common, Whenever you move from one state to another you will need to pick up a new insurance policy unless your Insurance Company is a national insurer and the…n you can register your vehicle in your new state of residence.

No. The insured must be the owner of the vehicle. You cannot insure something that you do not own. This is in any state. You don't want to find this out when you have a claim.… The insurance company cannot pay a claim on a vehicle where the owner of the vehicle is not the insured on the policy. As a matter of full disclosure, I own and operate a small Independent Insurance Company in Central Georgia and have for the past 22 years. Prior to that I worked as an agent for a direct writer of insurance for 3 years.
You cannot do this in any state. An auto insurance policy is a legally binding contract between two parties. The named insured must be the owner of the vehicle and no one else…. The only exception to this is in the case of two legally married persons in that vehicles owed by either one is allowed to be on an insurance policy of either one of them.
